Yo Yo Ma seeks a saviour for a Louis Kahn concert hallmain
Kahn designed Point Counterpoint II, a floating concert hall, for the American Wind Symphony Orchestra during the 1976 Bicentennial. It is now docked in Ottawa, Illinois and will be dismantled if a buyer is not found soon.
Yo Yo Ma has written this appeal in the New York Review of Books:
At a time when our national conversation is so often focused on division, we can ill afford to condemn to the scrap heap such a vibrant ambassador for our national unity, so I humbly ask that your readers join Robert and me in finding a new home for Point Counterpoint II. Please share any suggestions with Robert and Kathleen at email@example.com.
